Razzamataz Theatre School is giving away three scholarship places to attend Razzamataz York - one will be for six months absolutely freethe others will be for 50 per cent off one term and 10 per cent off one term respectively.

Razzamataz is an exciting theatre school offering ‘fast and funky’ classes involving street, hip hop and commercial styles of dance, pop-singing, film and television styles of acting, as well as musical theatre.

Razzamataz Theatre School in York, opened their doors in September and already students have performed at York Designer Outlet and at Monks Cross Santa Reindeer event. They will also be launching the UCAS accredited Arts Award in our second term.

Along with providing the students with opportunities, the theatre school has a commitment to improving the health and prospects of children across York. As part of this they are offering a six-month scholarship for one young budding artist in York.

“Building up a child’s confidence and self-esteem is a big part of what we do at Razzamataz,” says Angela Pickup, principal of Razzamataz York.

“We appreciate that the cost of bringing up children today is immense. By offering this scholarship we are hoping to give children the chance to benefit from so many positive aspects of the performing arts. Physical fitness levels are increased, positive mental attitudes are supported as well as confidence and self-esteem producing a definable sense of achievement.”

Auditions for these coveted places will be held in front of a panel of judges on Saturday 28 January from 2pm and they are open to anyone aged between 6–17 years-old who has a talent for performing.

Entrants must apply for a time slot and will be subject to availability. Time slots must be booked by 25 January. Entrants after this date will not be eligible.
